There’s been a little bit of an obsession with baos and steamed buns lately, so my short trip to Melbourne had to include the much talked about Wonderbao. I first heard about it from these lovely ladies late last year who are local Melbourne bloggers and it’s been on my to-go list ever since.
A few short hours after landing in Melbourne we make our way to Mamasita for our first feed in this city. You could say I had an eating itinerary so watch this space for some of my Melbourne eats to come. We’ve always had a soft spot for Mexican so thought it’d be a great way to start our trip.
It always excites me when we have a free Saturday which means being able to venture to places to tick off our to go list. We call a few friends to eat and chill with us, also showing them what our city has to offer. With my liking of the Drink and Dine Group so far, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try another. We make our way to The Norfolk in Surry Hills, ready for a good pub feed.
Another catch up session with my awesome eating companion sees us at the door step of La Bodequita del Medio, in the heart of the city on York Street, opposite the QVB. My friend’s sister raved on about the place so it was only nautral for us to see for ourselves what it was all about.
It took almost a year to get myself to Xanthi – one of the restaurants situated on the Dining Precinct (Level 6) of Westfield Sydney. I was envious of all the posts I had read – I’d love to link all the ones that made me drool but there’s just too many. Being in charge of a catch up due with some important people in my life, it was a no brainer that Xanthi was my pick for the evening.
